— Any hopes of a second straight trip to the Division 2 state title game vanished quickly Thursday night for the Monroe High girls softball team.

New London scored three runs in the top of the first inning and coasted to a 6-0 win over the Cheesemakers in a state semifinal game at Goodman Diamond.

Monroe, which finished 27-3, managed only four hits off New London pitcher Shelby Sommer. The junior righthander struck out five and did not walk a batter.

Alanna Beyer had a double and a triple for New London, while Morgan Gorges drove in two runs.

Monroe starting pitcher Becca Armstrong struck out eight but walked four batters, including three in the pivotal first inning.

New London (16-5) plays defending state champion Baldwin-Woodville (21-3) in Saturday's Division 2 state title game. Baldwin-Woodville pitcher Abby Klopp threw a one-hitter in the team's 9-0 semifinal win over New Berlin West on Thursday.
